Gas Prices and Loose Meat Hooks

I've gotten a few questions about our gas prices here in Germany. I'm not sure how they come up with the price, but I'm sure it has to do with the average price of gas in the States.

This picture was taken on Thursday, 31 August, after I got off work. At this station, there are 14 pumps, and each pump had about 5 cars waiting to get gas.


This picture was taken Friday, the VERY next day, at the same station.


Bob the Boob, the car salesman is from Scotland, and he told me that gas there has been over $5.00 a gallon for YEARS.

I picked up the new Hoop d'Ville Friday afternoon, just in time to spend $48 to fill it. . I'll post pictures in the next couple of days.

P has a loose tooth. As she explains it:
It's only wobbley loose, not wiggly loose.
She won't be 5 until February. Isn't she a little young to be losing her meat hooks? She did make one thing clear...she says she does NOT want anyone to pull it, because...
There will be BLOOD EVERYWHERE!
I'm sure it will be out in 3 weeks. Maybe I can outsource the pulling of the tiny meat hook.
